I am a sniffer.

I let my Choisya grow over the path because I love the spicy, savoury smell when I brush past.

Anyone fancy a Pimm's? The borage is in bloom!


Plant sometimes commonly called Bumble Bee plant/Bee plant/shrub?

On the pronunciation question, I was once told simply to say each syllable, with equal emphasis on each (clem-a-tis, not clem-ay-tis). But it really doesn't matter how you say it, as long as you can make yourself understood.

Foxgloves are hardy over winter, but as you've kept them inside you will need to harden them off gradually. Plant them out in their final position any time, once they are used to being outside.

Just let them trail over the edge of the new pot. You can cut them off when they go brown and dry.

Can You Identify This Plant?

Vinca major (leaf edges are ciliate).

which dwarf magnolia

Quite a few magnolia species don't flower until May or June, for example Magnolia sieboldii, M. tripetala and M. wilsonii. They will often be in leaf by this time. 'Sunrise' is apparently an April/May flowerer. Best advice would be to wait and see how it develops this year.

I mentioned this thread to my son, he knew all about the birds-pecking-out-the-liver theory. I wonder if it is true? There's nothing on the Froglife website, and I can't find any reference to the crow business since 2011 (it was in Australia, with cane toads).

Hanging basket seed disc advice please

I tried these in pots two years ago, just laid in the centre, and they were really quite impressive. I got mine from Morrisons for a couple of pounds each. I'm sure it would work to cut them up as well, though. One of the pots re-sprouted the next year and was nearly as good the second time around - excellent value for money!
